Weldon's 2D #53 c.1889 - Practical Drawn Thread Embroidery Work (Second Series)
back add to cart buy now

15 Pages. This book is the second series on the topic of Drawn Thread Embroidery. This is beautiful work, an art form unto itself. There are loads of different projects here and 21 lovely designs in the ancient technique. There are corners and borders for serviettes, tea cloth, tray cloth and handkerchiefs. This is quite a beautiful technique that is rarely done today - and it is so reminiscent of the wonderful era when it was last popular.


The Weldon's Twopenny series covered a wide range of topics. Although none of these magazines were dated, the series of these monthly magazines began in 1885 and ran for nearly 50 years! They are always extremely well illustrated, often with wood cut drawings, and occasional photographs. They are excellent resources to rekindle passions in these forgotten arts.
